the right web host is most critical task of web site
development. Once you develop, upload and add your site to
search engine, its difficult to move to another host.
It’s always good to do the thing right at first place.
Our visitors ask us all the time, what should be the
criteria of picking a web hosting company. We have created
a checklist. Almost all web host servers and plans that
are listed in 100 Plus Cheap Web Hosting Directory met
this criteria but it’s always good to cross check with
hosting company which you are planning to choose.
and features are always a major factor in choosing web
host. Are you getting the features that you are suppose to
get for the price you are paying? Higher price do not mean
that you will get best host. On the other hand don’t
fall for any plan by just looking at the low price. Do the
homework first, make list of features that you need for
your web site. Now hunt for the plans that meet your
requirement with economical budget. Many hosting companies
offer low price web hosting plans that looks very
attractive. In return they provide very less bandwidth and
disk space, or very few features. You may be charge
additional fee for extra bandwidth, disk space or any
particular feature you need. If you add up these
additional fees you may be paying than you would if you
had signed up for a plan that included more features and
bandwidth. Use our price
and feature compression of 100 Plus Cheap Web Hosting
to select right plan for you.
support is another big factor in picking a host. As i said
earlier higher price do not mean that you will get best
host in the world. However, higher price mean you may get
a good chance of getting better technical support because
they have money to hire people to provide round the click
(24/7) technical support. Also consider what level of
technical support hosting company is providing, toll free
or round the clock (24/7), and email support or just only
online manuals. Ask yourself, how comfortable are you with
company that provides only online manual as technical
support? Hosting companies that do not provides technical
support is not worth considering.
you are running a web business or commercial website you
would not want to take any chance. Bad support and
downtime would be the worst nightmare for you. Many
visitors ask me what is the meaning of 99.5% uptime
guarantee? Its simply mean your site will be up and
running for 99.5% of the time and if it goes down more
then 0.5% of the time, hosting company will refund you
money for down period.
The best is 100% uptime (which I don’t think any
company can offer). Most of the hosting company offers
99.5% uptime but anything lest then 99.5% is not worth
this directory or similar directory to find out feedback
about web hosting companies. Lots of unsatisfied customers
means there is some issue with technical support of
hosting company. Try to gather as much information as possible.
nice to have money back. If you are not satisfies you can
always take you money and go to some other company. Most
of the company offer money back guarantee of 2 weeks to 3
months. If any company that meet all the above criteria
and offer money back guarantee, definitely worth
the right hosting provider for you depends on your
individual needs. A hosting account that is perfect for me
not be suitable for you. There are thousands of host and
each company offer different plan with varying features.
If you sincerely do you homework, figure out your
requirements and need and evaluate companies based upon
above criteria, you should be satisfied with your hosting
luck for choosing a right web hosting company.
